Key Roofing Conferences in North America

As a professional in the roofing industry, attending conferences is crucial for staying ahead of the latest trends, technologies, and best practices. North America hosts several key annual events that offer rich educational sessions and networking opportunities.

International Roofing Expo

The International Roofing Expo (IRE) is the premier event for roofing professionals across North America. It is scheduled for February 6-8, 2024, in Las Vegas. At the vast Las Vegas Convention Center, you'll experience a comprehensive exteriors event complete with a lineup of expert keynote speakers and a live auction. This flagship event not only sets the stage for networking with thousands of industry professionals but also provides a comprehensive look at the latest innovations and best practices.

In 2023, Best Roofer Marketing had the honor of working alongside Atlas Roofing Shingles at IRE as one of their video marketing partners. We were tasked with assisting Atlas in recording their Asphalt Life Truck Giveaway, which was a contest for their Atlas Pro Contractors.

Prior to the International Roofing Expo week is the National Women in Roofing Day.

National Women in Roofing Day is an annual event that celebrates and recognizes the achievements and contributions of women in the roofing industry. It is an initiative to promote diversity and inclusion within the roofing sector, which has traditionally been male-dominated.

The day typically involves various activities, events, and initiatives organized by the National Women in Roofing (NWIR) organization and its partners. These may include networking opportunities, educational sessions, panel discussions, and other events designed to empower and support women in the roofing profession.
